May your May shine, Arisa! 

We're well into the Spring season and now veering into festival territory. With that said, we have a number of festival events we'd love to see you participate in, particularly the Kodomo no Hi and Soy and Tofu Festival. They're great opportunities to see some unique facets of San Francisco life! Check out the details below and hope to see you there!

5/7/16 [Volunteer] Spam Musubi Fundraiser at Kodomo no Hi in the JCCCNC

Come out for good company and cook for a great cause!

We'll be making lots and lots of spam musubi to sell at the Kodomo no Hi festival in SF Japantown's Peace Plaza again this year, with all the proceeds going to support cultural programs at the JCCCNC. So come put your spam expertise to use, or learn a new skill!

There will be 2 shifts:
Shift 1 - 8:00AM to 12:30PM (Food preparation/cooking, booth set-up, food transportation, selling spam musubi)
Shift 2 - 12:00PM to 4:30PM (Selling spam musubi, kitchen clean-up, booth clean-up)

The fundraiser has always been a success thanks to donations from North American Foods and Nakayoshi volunteers, so thank you always for your support!

April 2016 Recap

On the rocks or neat? Nakayoshi enjoyed an all-nighter at the Jones rooftop lounge and downtown on Saturday, April 30. Album
How often do you get the opportunity to carry a 1-ton mikoshi down a parade route? During the 49th Cherry Blossom Festival last month, Nakayoshi did exactly that with the wider community. Please join us next year for this unique opportunity! Album
